It may be that a school shares a catchment area with another - for instance my catchment grammars are SWBGS, WHS and JHGS and GMS for non grammar. If you're trying to work out your catchment school there's a postcode checker which lists them all.

I can't access the part of the BCC site that you are looking at, and I can't find a reference to those phrases otherwise.

The obvious answer is that many grammar schools' catchment areas overlap, e.g. AGS and Sir Henry Floyd. Quite simply, a single gender and mixed school which cover much of the same geographic area.

If you live in Area 2 on that map, no, your catchment schools are AGS and Sir Henry Floyd. (They "share a catchment area".)

The likelihood of your son gaining a place at DCGS from there is very, very small indeed. You can put it on the CAF and hope, but the schools I've just mentioned are the ones that will deliver a place.
